Germany: TerraSAR-X now in new wide-angle mode

The German Bight in the Wide Scan mode

The German TerraSAR-X radar satellite, operated by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and Astrium, has been switched into a new wide-angle view mode allowing the satellite to record image strips over 200 kilometres wide. "The satellite does so by sweeping this large area in multiple stages, very quickly pivoting the radar beam numerous times across the direction of flight," explains DLR mission manager Stefan Buckreuss.

German satellite could help Chile predict natural disasters

A conference of geological and scientific experts met in the southern Chilean city of Punta Arenas last week to discuss using the TerraSAR-X satellite system to assist Chile in predicting volcanic eruptions. The satellite, which has been in orbit for nearly a year, could provide Chile with significantly advanced warning of volcanic activity and tsunamis.

Satellite images reveal extent of Rena oil leak

A new satellite image that shows the likely spread of oil from the Rena suggests things may be worse than many realise.

The satellite image was captured by DLR, the German Aerospace Centre, by its TerraSAR satellite on Friday and shows the likely spread of oil from the ship, which remains stuck on the Astrolabe Reef off the coast of Tauranga.
